If it’s August Bank Holiday Monday, it must be the Hope Show.

Crowds turned out for the event that gives visitors a taste of the countryside and creates a community focalpoint. “Members of the public leave with a better understanding of what farming and rural industry is all about,” said show president Roger Dickson.

Not everything was a reflection of traditional rural activities, though.

One of the highlights was the Blazing Saddles stunt riding show.
